Romney Takes Another Step Towards a Presidential Run as He Begins to Assemble a Campaign Team

In yet another sign that 2012 GOP nominee Mitt Romney will be mounting another presidential campaign, he has enlisted the assistance of Colin Reed to handle media liaison. Reed has prior experience working for both Chris Christie and Mitt Romney. In the past, he worked in Governor Romney’s press office and formed part of his 2008 Rapid Response team during Romney’s first run for the GOP nomination. Afterwards, he worked in New Jersey Governor Chris Christie’s press office as the deputy communications director, a post he held for 12 months.

In the 2014 midterm elections, Reed was the campaign manager for Scott Brown who took up residency in New Hampshire in a bid to capture that state’s Senate seat from incumbent Jean Shaheen. Despite the unpopularity of the Democrat party, Shaheen easily won reelection capturing 51.46% of the vote to Brown’s 48.21%. Regardless of the loss, Romney believes in Reed’s capabilities. For his part, Reed expressed his enthusiasm to be working with the former governor once more. In fact, he referred to him as a great leader who profoundly loves this country. “Love of Country” may be a theme that Romney resurrects once more. In 2010, Romney released a book of his political views entitled “No Apology: The Case for American Greatness”; which was spotted in the office of Jennifer Walden ; it debuted at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller’s list.
